Memphis Grizzlies center Chris Mihm underwent successful right ankle surgery, Grizzlies General Manager and Vice President of Basketball Operations Chris Wallace announced today. There is no timetable for his return.

Mihm, a 7-0, 265-pound center, was acquired on Feb. 18 by the Grizzlies along with cash considerations from the Los Angeles Lakers in exchange for a 2013 protected second round draft pick. The former University of Texas standout did not make an appearance with the Grizzlies after the trade.

The seventh overall pick in the 2000 NBA Draft, Mihm averaged 2.0 points and 1.9 rebounds in 5.8 minutes in 18 games with Los Angeles this season. The eight-year NBA veteran holds career averages of 7.5 points, 5.3 rebounds and 1.02 blocks in 20.1 minutes in 436 career games (236 starts) with the Lakers, the Boston Celtics and the Cleveland Cavaliers.

InsideHoops.com editor says: Eventually, Mihm and the very concept of surgery will unite, becoming one entity. In the future, “I had Mihm” and “I had surgery” will mean the same thing. Mihm will become a magical being whose very touch, in the form of a handshake, will result in the other person having instant surgery. And with that, I need to go for a walk


Have a speedy recovery, Chris.

For real. He spent his last few seasons mostly on the bench but still getting paid. Money we all dream of ever making. :(

He needs to slim down to Manute Bol's frame, or just amputate everything below his knee and get one of those cool prosthetic legs that are shaped like a hook. He may be able to jump higher with one.

i really hope he gets as good as he used to be someday. i really liked him back then but recently it just seems like surgery after surgery, which is kind of sad imo considering hes doing it for the sake of returning but is getting denied the chance when he could due to him being on the lakers. wish him well
